I understand that certain posts, even at cases where they’re not directly breaking the rules of /sdg/, might need to be removed. What I don’t understand is why you’re not notified. I’ve had to message several moderators just to find out why a post was removed, and the only reason I notice these posts disappearing is the fact that any notifications you might have gotten from that thraed (be it likes or replies) also disappear and create a very obvious gap in my notification history.
This is the most recent one I’ve had, removed the details just in case as I’m not trying to ‘‘out’’ any specific moderator, though I’ve had encounters where I had to bounce between three moderators in an attempt to figure out who deleted a post of mine.
My suggestion is that users at least get a notification or a private message detailing the bare minimum, who removed the post, why it was removed, so on. This would also allow users to appeal any post removal without having to go through several moderators to find out who removed their post and for what reason. There’s no reason for a mod to silently remove posts from any user except the most extreme cases, it would not add any significant workload to the moderators, and I don’t see why a short message detailing the removal shouldn’t be implemented.
